ISS PICTURE OF THE DAY



Space Station Science Picture of the Day for June 2, 2003

For about 500 years between 1500 and 1000 BC, Egyptians buried their
pharoahs not in pyramids but in grand underground complexes. More than
sixty royal tombs, including that of King Tutankhamen, are located in
the Valley of the Kings across the river from Luxor.  The space station
recently flew over the Valley and captured some lovely pictures of the
region--including telltale signs of archeological excavations.
